Complex Fluids and Flows in Industry and Nature II

University of British Columbia
Fluids that exhibit physical behaviours which are not Newtonian are
extremely common in nature and in industrial contexts. Equally prevalent
are interfacial flows, multi-phase mixtures and suspensions. Examples
include: mud, lava, polymer melts, cosmetic creams, ketchup, mayonnaise,
chocolate, heavy oils, pulp suspensions, cement slurries, granular
flows, pastes, etc.. Due to the complexity of studying such systems,
applied mathematics plays a key role in research and in practical
application of solutions to the many unsolved flow problems. This
workshop brings together a select group of researchers in this area,
with a strong mathematical focus, drawn from many disciplines, to
